don't count your chickens before they hatch, you guys have to agree on something first.
Do any of those include plowing? Its never to early to do snowplow stuff, i pulled my plows today to start making my winter rigs.

ya travis im not counting on anything. i just want to get everything figured out to see if i can handle it. you know what i mean? i need to get ready though because if i do get them i will have to start at the beginning of September.

we didnt talk to long so im not sure on all the plowing. i know he said that he shovels 8-9 by hand so if they carry over i will probably get a 4 wheeler or just tow my mower around on the trailer. no truck plow this year.

most of my places i plow are small, 4-wheelers will be easier to get into the drives. I'm makign a 4' blade for sidewalks plus i will make removable wings for the bigger ones. I don't need another truck anyways. I'm hoping that next year i'll have myself a '03-'06 f-250 diesel so then i will plow with it and my parents will probably take the truck i have now.
